My soon to be ex wife is asking for 8000 dollars in lawyer fees. I currently pay her 800 in child support, 500 for medical for our daughter and 1200 in alimony, after paying this I am left with 600 a month to survive on. I have been paying her this for a year already and she has not even attempted to find work or started school to obtain job skills. She has recently asked that I pay for her lawyer fees but I didn't hire a lawyer myself because I couldn't afford one. Will I be responsible for hers?
Also she is the one who moved out of the home, filed for separation and then for divorce.
